Question about Cars & Trucks
My 2003 peugeot 206 has something terribly wrong. sometimes i select gears mainly 1st and 2nd and it feels as it has gone into gear but when i try to drive it feels like its in neutral, can it go in between gears??? have had linkage rods done, and a new clutch, is this the actual gearbox problem??? any help would be appreciated as 2 mechanics have had it now and neither have solved the problem just billed me for jobs that i wonder if needed doing at all????
Almost certainly an internal gear problem bite the bullet and take to a Peugeot dealer for a confident diagnosis and then shop around for the best deal

Did your mechanics remove the transmission and make internal repairs ? Because there isn't any external rods or linkage on your car and if the transmission was removed to repair the cost would have been at least several hundred dollars.I believe yours has a top load shifter that connect to a gear selecter slide to change gears. I have worked on Peugots and to remove the transmission requires pulling the rear end assembly back to remove the drive shaft to pull the transmission itself. I have had such miserable time working on them because of the way they are designed that I wouldn't even consider working on another one. But the best of luck getting yours repaired.

If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.
